The first leg was 0 - 0.
A score of 1-1 in barcelona sees benfica go thrugh. Can Barcelona make it?

RoBi; thanks for your concern regarding Barca, but don't you have other things to worry about...

The first leg was one of the best matches I've seen this season despite being a goalless draw. All that matters now is that we put up a similar performance in the second leg, only with some goalscoring. :D

Damn what a good team we have right now, it's such a joy too watch it in action.

Just wait until Xavi gets returns and gets match-fit and the joy will get amplified. :thumbsup:

Falastini - I guess i could just wait in silence. But my anticipation for this match is unlike no others.

Moe - You are right. Lets wait a little bit, and talk about this game at a later time. ill be back tomorrow. (oh wait it is tomrrow 2:21 am). I guess Falastini is right, i don't have anything better to do.

Ronaldinho#10 - Thats right. But more than a nice guy, i am somone a who enjoys a good match or two.

Andy Christ - I feel you man. This is going to be some match as both teams have similar football. Important to note i used the word football as opposed to ballet.

RoBi dont worry about it.

Were all really excited about the game, just the Madrid game is on Saturday so I wouldnt expect too much response before that.

Man, our finishing has been horrendous as of late. If we continue this lack of killer instinct, Benfica will win. They know how to counter attack and take their chances.

I hope Messi can start, but he shouldn't be forced to play.

As you said our inability to score goals from open plays has been scary in the last 3 games.
Liverpool got punished at home for not being clinical in front of goal and i'm afraid another similar scenario will happen if we can't finish our chances on Wednesday.
This is really getting serious.

the real scary thing is, Liverpool did 3 games in a raw of not taking their chances, and then got Benfica knocking them out of Europ!!!

now we'll have to deal with something like that, if the midfield don't start scoring goals, we'll be in big trouble specialy if Ronaldinho, Eto'o or Larsson isn't his day to score goals!!

BTW : any news about Puyol ?

I saw Nuno Gomez crying out of injury in Benfica's game in Super Liga. I think he is out of the game. Any news about Puyol and Motta? Motta's injury looked bad! hope puyol will feature next wednesday...

hope we will get something like this:

Valdes
-----------------------------
Oleguer Edmilson Puyol Gio
-----------------------------
Iniesta
MVB Deco
-----------------------------
Messi Ronie
Eto'o

Nuno Gomes should not play wednesday.....nevertheless he would not start...

If our asshole coach doesnt mess around as usualy...we should play with tree defensive mid(Petit,Fernandes and Beto) with Geovanni as right winger,Simao as left winger and Miccoli in front....

Miccoli scored a howler yesterday. Whoever plays in defense against Benfica has to keep him at bay.
I don't know how about you guys, but I've got a baaad feeling before Wednesday. If we get a 1-1 again, we'll be out.
